Occassionaly, Redbrick users experience rage, or 'raeg' as it's known in leetspeak. This occurs when a user has so much built-up emo anger that even the slightest things cause them to break down into a steaming furnace of fury.
Such outbursts are often spotted on IRC, but have been known to occur on the boards. A common cause of rage is shit trolling by another user and/or deep-rooted psychological problems. Nobody can be sure really; but then again, nobody cares.
Identified causes of rage
- Things that are "Grand.": See Grand.
- Losing an EGM election before you ever log onto RB
- Spaceflight industry
- Gardening and general horticulture
- Sea monkeys and other office pets
- Gmail being borked
- Shit guitarists who can only play two power chords and still think they're deadly.
- Getting caught travelling on the LUAS without a ticket, and expecting to be pardoned.
- Spoilers (or the chance that something may or may not in fact be a spoiler)
- The RTE Player, the biggest pile of wankery to ever hit your browser.
- Remarks about the 'elitest' attitude of the south side of Dublin, roysh.
- moju - see: elitism, snobs, vegetables.
